Banyan Gewürztraminer 2015
A refreshing bright wine with floral aromatics. This off dry 2015 Gewürztraminer is grown at Mission Ranch and Ventana Vineyards in the Arroyo Seco AVA of Monterey . Typical for that area, wind, fog, and cool temperatures predominate year round. The vineyard is carefully farmed to assure the specific ripeness, a balance of sugar and acidity, that we are looking for. A long growing season and temperatures that rarely rise above 80°F create an ideal spot for such an intensely aromatic wine.
Pairs well with Southeast Asian cuisines.
